1. Happy Friday, Sharks! Due to alliterative fate, we are introducing Featured Fridays! Have you checked out the Featured tab in the Explore page?

    Grooveshark is the place to go to listen to any music you want, but what about the times when you’re bored with your tunes? This page remedies those problems by featuring new releases as well as artists from an array of genres that will mix up your listening experience!

    The Featured page updates every Thursday, so be sure to check out the featured artists and releases each week. We even put a sample playlist together for you with one song from each artist and release below! Enjoy!


  2. After months of everyone at the shark tank working ‘round the clock to bring you a brand new user experience, we’re extremely excited to bring you all a complete redesign of Grooveshark! The all-new Grooveshark has arrived—a sleeker, more seamless experience with a powerful combination of streaming music and social networking

    Music is a universal language that inspires and connects people around the globe, and the Internet is a natural pathway for people to find more music they love. We understand the importance of discovering and sharing music with friends, and the redesign makes Grooveshark an efficient place to do both! In addition to improvements in speed, appearance, and navigation, the new Grooveshark places a heavy emphasis on social media sharing and community features that complement tighter integrations with third-party social media tools such as Facebook, Twitter, StumbleUpon, Last.fm and Reddit.   

    Key features and upgrades of the new Grooveshark include:

    •  A new Explore section that enables the discovery of music through a Featured Artist section, quick access to new releases and completely redesigned, genre-based Radio Stations!

    •  A Community section that allows users to follow and interact with tastemakers and friends while discovering more music tailored to their tastes that can be shared with the entire community through improved drag-and-drop functionality. This is a great place to see what everyone is listening to, find the good stuff and pass it off as your own discovery!

    • Artist and user profile pages that allow fans to follow and interact with their favorite artists, discover mutual tastes, or follow what their friends are listening to. Find your friends and see what everyone is listening to! Just watch out for your Mom commenting on your latest dirty rap playlist… there’s a privacy setting for that!

    • System-wide ability to comment on activities and events, reduced advertising intrusion, and more prominent event listings for quick access to information about concerts and music festivals all over the world!

    • The ability to instantly transform your Current Songs to a music video Playlist without ever leaving Grooveshark!

    And for all the artists out there: beginning today, you can login at http://artists.grooveshark.com to verify your tracks and start interacting with your fans! 

    Check out the redesign and let us know what you think! We’re really proud of the new site, and we hope you all love it as much as we do. Head to Grooveshark.com right now to start connecting with your friends and favorite artists!


  3. Sharks, we have a big announcement!

    Grooveshark is getting a site redesign! Everyone here has been working diligently to improve Grooveshark to be more seamless, aesthetically pleasing and easier to navigate. Our last site redesign was in December of 2010 and this redesign promises to be the best Grooveshark it can be. To reward our loyal users we are giving our subscribers an early access preview.

    Some aspects of the site redesign include a subtle facelift to the aesthetics, improvements to navigation, improvements to the queue and improvements to the social aspects of Grooveshark. The new social aspects will include new artist profile pages, new user profile pages, an improved community section and improved activity feeds. There will also be a new explore section with a discovery aspect including featured music and recommendations.

    Because we love the people who read our blog, we are sharing some screenshots to give a preview of some of the new features! 

    We’ve made some changes to make it easier to navigate Grooveshark, no matter what page you’re on. The new top navigation bar lets you quickly search for music, find your friends and feeds, view your music, and go to our new section, Explore.

    Explore is a brand new section of Grooveshark that helps you discover all kinds of new music. From new releases to featured playlists, popular songs and genre Radio Stations, Explore will help you find great music that you’re going to love.

    On the Artists page you can browse, discover or keep up with any artist you’d like!

    Here you can keep up with what your favorite artists have been up to lately on the New Releases page!

    On the Popular page you can explore the most popular songs being played on Grooveshark.

    Here you can browse and listen to the array of stations that Grooveshark has predesigned based on genre.

    Clicking on My Music takes you to your library of songs, playlists, favorites, and all the things you’ve pinned to your sidebar—your quick list of all your favorite playlists, songs, and stations.

    Your Favorites live here!

    Here are all of your playlists, neatly organized for you to find and jam out to!

    We’ve updated the Community page to make it easier to track what your shark friends are listening to! 

    This is what it will look like when you go to find a song and play it. 

    This page shows how artists will be organized. There will be tabs for activity, songs, albums and events. 

    We hope you enjoy the redesign and let us know what you think! We will unveil the official redesign to all of our users in the near future - stay tuned!
